Lewis Hamilton says he'll study Nico Rosberg's Bahrain Grand Prix data in a bid to ensure he's one step ahead at the next event.

The Briton went into the Bahrain on the back of a dominant win in Malaysia. Hamilton topped all three practice sessions, but when it came to qualifying, Rosberg managed to outpace his team-mate.

Hamilton believes the reason Rosberg found so much pace is because he studied his data from Malaysia.

"I'm relaxed, I'm happy," said the 2008 world champion. "But I also know there is a lot of work to do.

"I know that I lacked a little bit of pace, I didn't have the pace that I had last week [in Malaysia].

"So I'm going to study hard these next two weeks and I'm going to be giving it a lot of thought."

Hamilton revealed that a member of the Mercedes team identified several reasons why he managed to dominate Rosberg the weekend before.

"Someone in the team did a huge study on my pace last week and, as I arrived here this weekend, there was this big document with all the reasons why I was quick. And he used that to his advantage," said Hamilton.

"So I'll do the same and hope that it works for me."
